Houzz is the new way to design your home.
I like the brick integrated with the wood flooring. However i would have wood predominately and have brick inlaid within the wood.
I like the idea of a small (functioning)pool incorporated in the area as not to be the dominating feature but a compliment to the landscape / outdoor rooms / patio / living area
windows - a different style versus the common windows seen in other vaulted ceiling rooms. these seem less generic and more purposeful than just bringing in light. As if they were not windows before but a place to put large beams to hold up the structure.
the doors over the mantle are sliding doors that probably expose the TV.
crown molding / shaker cabinets and the legs
roof / print porch
front porch style
pool is not the focus but a compliment
Hydrangas with ivy ground cover
Wood paneled office, safe haven from a busy house.
basement pub, why go out?
big enough to have a party
classy without looking too rich
